Building Energy Management Control System (BEMCS)
Building Energy Management Control System (BEMCS),
using wireless technology, enables all of the windows in a residence
or commercial building to have "building intelligence." This will
optimize energy utilization of buildings, improve occupant comfort
and productivity, enhance aesthetics, and support sustainable
building design. The building's windows are controlled manually and
allows for presets, sensor and advanced algorithm control. Presets
provide the times in the day when tint settings change to a
designated value. Light and occupancy sensors automatically control
the tint levels based on sensor detected events. Advanced solar heat
gain algorithms are targeted at reducing the energy usage of a
building. See below: Building Energy Management
Building Energy Management Control System allows building
administrators to control and manage their buildings' automation
systems with optimum energy efficiency. Our initial building
control system supports variable tint SPD Smart Glass. Our
system optimizes the energy saving qualities of Smart Glass.
software intensive system provides a framework for easy
customization to satisfy customer requirements.
Scalable - The
system supports small buildings to skyscrapers.
Devices - The
BEMCS supports control modules, sensors and switches. The control
devices may be intelligent or dumb. Our intelligent controller
provides local control of multiple sensors, controls and switches
allowing immediate control.
Wireless and LAN-based Network - The
system supports wireless and LAN-based network nodes. The wireless
system is a ZigBee (IEEE 802.15.4) redundant node mesh network.
Customization / Additional devices
BEMCS is designed to allow it to be customized to meet the exacting
requirements of our customers and to easily configure additional
switches, sensors, and controllers.
system is accessed using a standard web browser allowing a wide
range of devices to be used locally and remotely. Devices include
PC, Mac, iPhone, Blackberry, PDA's and any other device with a
standard web browser. The smaller screens of mobile phones and
PDA's are accommodated.
Master Building Control System (MBCS)
This is the "brains" of the BEMCS providing advanced energy
efficiency control algorithms, system configuration, system control
and reports. Refer to
Automatic modes and manual switch/sensor/network administrator
Automatic Energy Efficiency Algorithms -
Multiple automatic energy efficiency algorithms are provided and
additional customer specific algorithms may be included. Automatic
mode allows for presets, sensor and advanced algorithm control.
Presets provide the times in the day when tint settings change to a
designated value. Photo and occupancy sensors automatically control
the tint levels based on sensor detected events.
Glare and Daylighting
- Glare and daylighting are factors in our energy efficiency
algorithms to maximize visual comfort and reduce energy use.
Smart Glass and Daylight Harvesting: Advanced
Light Control That Saves Energy
Windows are grouped into Control Zones that are controlled as a unit
using sensors, switches and automatic algorithms. Control Zones
include windows, rooms, floors, facades and tenant windows.
Graphic Displays -
Graphic displays with multiple views including network, building,
façade, and tenant views.
Legacy Networks -
Interfaces to legacy building networks are supported using gateways.
system provides an XML interface to a central building control
system to allow all SPD windows to be controlled externally. This
allows all building systems (HVAC, lighting, fans, ...) to be
coordinated. For example, if natural light is available from the
windows then the rooms lights can be adjusted.
